Win a notebook computer or $2,000 cash in the Financial Fitness Challenge!

Young Nova Scotians are invited to take the Financial Fitness Challenge, a contest designed to raise awareness about budgeting, saving and investing.

The Challenge, which runs Feb. 15 to April 15, uses a new, interactive website to quiz youth on their financial knowledge. The contest is sponsored by the Canadian Securities Administrators, of which the Nova Scotia Securities Commission is a member.

The contest allows participants to compete with friends and other  people at a local and national level. It also features its own Facebook page where young Canadians can exchange ideas and tips about managing money, or you can receive contest updates on Twitter.

While anyone can visit the site, the bilingual contest is open to Canadians aged 15 to 21. Thirteen entries, one from each province and territory, will be randomly selected from eligible participants to win a notebook computer, with a national grand prize winner awarded $2,000.

Teachers are also encouraged to use the program as a fun and informative learning tool to support the development of good financial behaviour among their students. Visit the teacher resource page to download classroom materials, including complete lesson plans.
